Hooking the Q1000 to pfSense question?



  • Hello,
    So for my modem/router I use the Q1000. I would like pfSense to manage everything and the modem just to connect it to the outside world. On my Q1000 there is a option to put it into Transparent Bridge mode. So if I put my Q1000 into Transparent Bridge mode would I need to put in my PPPoE info in my pfSense box?

    Thanks

    Usually yes you must do that.



  • That is exactly how you do it.  You will want to make sure you have your username / password for the PPPoE account handy.  I forgot to jot it down before I reconfigured my Q1000 and had to make a call to CentruryLink.  Once I had the login info, it took less than 5 minutes to get everything up and running.

    I've had my Q1000 playing nice with PfSense for quite a while now.  You should be quite happy once it's setup!
